Corsair Dark Core RGB SE and MM1000 Wireless Review

Corsair Dark Core RGB SE

Wireless gaming is going to be big business in 2018. It’s been a good market in the past, but innovations in power management, wireless connectivity speeds, wireless charging and more are finally in a bit of a sweet spot. Wireless used to mean more lag, but it really doesn’t anymore. This mouse can deliver a 1ms response time, Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz connectivity, and even run in wired mode for a backup and to charge it. Furthermore, it can be charged wirelessly, such as with the MM1000 wireless charging mouse mat from Corsair. In short, this mouse seems to have it all.

No sacrifices have been made to the usual Corsair suite of features. With built-in RGB multi-zone lighting, nine fully programmable buttons, Omron switches, braided cables, long battery life, modular ergonomics, and more. The list goes on, but on paper, this may be the best mouse Corsair has ever made!


  • ON-BOARD PROFILE STORAGE: Saves lighting effects, macros and DPI settings for universal access to your profile without the need for drivers or additional software.
  • UP TO 24HRS OF BATTERY LIFE: Never run out of power when you need it the most.
  • SURFACE CALIBRATION TUNING UTILITY: Optimizes sensor precision and responsiveness for your playing surface.
  • HIGH-PERFORMANCE OMRON SWITCHES RATED FOR 50 MILLION CLICKS: Omron switches are custom-tuned for gaming, providing an ultrafast response and reliability over time.
  • DYNAMIC MULTI-COLOR 3-ZONE BACKLIGHTING: Customizable backlighting immerses you in the game by providing nearly unlimited lighting adjustability.
  • NINE BUTTONS, FULLY PROGRAMMABLE WITH CUE: Take control with extensive customization, from simple remaps, to complex macros. Assign macros to any key and create dynamic lighting effects with CORSAIR Utility Engine (CUE).


The box looks like most other Corsair products, with a great picture on the front, and plenty of technical information around the back.
